Burly Men at Sea
A branching folktale adventure game about the misadventures of a trio of large, bearded fishermen.
One of TIME’s top ten games of the year, Burly Men at Sea is a folktale about a trio of large, bearded fishermen who step away from the ordinary to seek adventure.
With gameplay halfway between a visual novel and a point-and-click adventure, the branching story carries its ungainly heroes into waters where lurk creatures from Scandinavian folklore and other misadventures. You play as storyteller and wayfinder, shaping a custom tale that begins again where it ends.
“The closest thing I’ve played to an interactive fairy-tale.” —The Telegraph
“It’s whimsical and charming; a real breath of fresh air.” —Paste Magazine
BRANCHING STORY: Play through multiple choice-driven adventures, each designed to be completed in a single sitting.
INNOVATIVE CONTROLS: Shape the narrative through a unique, draggable viewport and your interactions within it.
PLAYFUL AESTHETIC: Colorful art style with handcrafted animation, set to a whimsical original soundtrack inspired by the game’s Scandinavian setting.
Burly Men at Sea is the second game from husband-and-wife team Brain&Brain, developed during their own adventures as nomads and erstwhile farmhands.
